What We Are Looking For
We're looking for someone who checks off most, but not all, of the boxes. It's more important to us to find a candidate who can display indicators of success through skills they have developed and experience they have been a part of, than to find folks who have "been there, done that". We want to be a part of your development journey, and we'll learn as much from you as you learn from us.

There are a couple must haves, but we will keep that list short:
-You are working towards a Bachelor's degree in Business or Economics (specializing in Accounting is considered an asset but not required)
-You have an analytical mind, and enjoy finding solutions to complex problems
-You love numbers, analyzing large datasets, and building financial models
-You like working in a fast paced, collaborative environment with smart and interesting people
